What is a Corridor?

This project was undertaken on exchange at the Universidade do Porto. 

What is a Corridor is a conceptual exploration of the notion of a corridor, directionality and movement in architecture. It culminated in the design, execution and collaboration with stone manufacturers and engineers to develop a seemingly free-standing pavilion built in Porto.

The pavilion takes cues from phenomenology and utilises the stone’s natural roughness, alongside the positioning of the walls, to create a space which frames the surrounding views. Due to its scale, the pavilion is to be read as a corporeal experience, varying from narrow and claustrophobic to open and accessible.
